Univision has said that their team headed by Jorge Ramos has been arbitrarily detained by the Venezuelan government at the Miraflores Palace in Caracas. They were interviewing Maduro, but he didn't like the question. Their equipment was also confiscated as well.

The State Department has received word about this incident as well.

Some New M&As. 

NBC is acquiring Telemundo affiliates in Sacramento & Salt Lake City, owned by Serestar Communications  for $21M.

 

It's been greenlighted.

 

Some actually wrote an objection over the deal between the complainer & the seller about two weeks ago, but the FCC denied that objection today.

WSMV has a new news director...Mitch Jacob, who worked at WJLA and WSYX.

https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/2/26/news-director-change-in-nashville

 

While his time in DC has been debateable (overshadowed by the fact of WJLA being taken over by Sinclair), WSYX was a solid #2 under his watch and has always been one of the most successful and profitable Sinclair stations.

 

This and the new GM hopefully can move WSMV forward from the bad press it has garnered over the past year or so due to....well...we all know...cough cough....dk....cough cough....among other changes, layoffs and lawsuits... 

 

And could they bury the hatchet and decide to bring her back perhaps?

He made WSYX more aggressive in their news coverage, there were some spikes in #2 at WSYX but it wasn't across the board in all newscast.  Jamie Justice the current ND she couldn't keep the momentum going... I think he couldn't do what he did at WSYX for WJLA.  A different market and Sinclair was ready to cut that budget at WJLA and he resigned during Sweeps.  So he has his work cut out at WSMV.

Some of the momentum for WSYX was also lost once WBNS poached their talent (Yolanda Harris and Pete Scalia) and sterilized them.  (You won't see this kind of "personality" when Yolanda is paired with Jerry Revish.)

WMYT began delaying its programming to 11pm to 1am in September in favor of Modern Family, Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men reruns. Can’t really blame them even if it is Fox O&O market.

Hmm. Yolanda Harris, I would say, but Pete I can't co-sign, However,  Yolanda plays second fiddle at BNS where she was the mainstay at WSYX.  I was told many told her (Yolanda) not to go over to BNS. It might be #1

but inside it, a mess and many are still wondering how long the Wolfe family going to keep the station in their hands.  Yolanda was a band-aid to keep the machine pumping, but nothing last forever.  Remember SYX was fighting with

CMH for #2.

If I recall correctly, BNS was trying to get Yolanda as early as 2012, to replace Andrea Cambern.  Perhaps if she would’ve joined them then, the energy could’ve remained. (Kristyn Hartman simply wasn’t a Cambern clone, and it didn’t work out - but I do feel badly for how she left...given the 10 still dominated with her at the helm.)

 

BNS is a tough station to watch...because truth be told, any energy and personality that station had left with Andrea Cambern.

 

(But I digress...Mitch Jacob will have his work cut out fo him at WSMV.  I remember his work at WTOL after his stint in Phoenix.)
